exactly right. it's the last thing that barack obama would have wanted to do, to be talking about the first press conference of his new second term approaching. there's always a struggle. no mandate in the constitution. always a push back by the opposition party. 1992 when bill clinton was elected bob dole went on tv and said i represent the 57% of americans who did not vote for bill clinton. paul ryan gave an interview saying he didn't believe that president obama has a mandate because he didn't win both congresses. you have to say eisenhower, nixon, reagan, other presidents substantially re-elected or elected didn't have mandates themselves. >> tom brokaw, in this second term as the president begins to decide how to shape his policies, be he according to all that have talked to him and other white house officials want to get things done. he told the "des moines register" in an interview he thought was going to be held as an off the record interview, wanted to do something big on immigration. clearing the deck of these investigations as you said and this our aura of scandal is critic
